Spring into Summer - the winning window

Jackey was winner in 2016, runner up in 2017 and now winner again in 2018. So she must be doing something right!

"We did our summer changeover in April when the weather wasn't that great. It was very grey but we wanted to use all the beautiful, bright colours to create a smile for our customers and passers-by. Spring is the time when everyone notices how tired their houses look and start spring cleaning and painting. So we painted mayonnaise buckets to match the scarves pouring out of them resembling paint, and accessorised it with shoes, handbags and clutch bags in solid bright colours. We created the outfit on the mannequin with a plain dress and beach sarongs and scarves. We made the paper flowers with craft paper to tie the scheme together. It was great fun and certainly created a lot of smiles and was enjoyed by everyone passing our shop."
